Breastfeeding and stiff joints?

Lately I have had really sore hands...they are stiff and will be sore at times. I've read before that breastfeeding moms get this because they are almost in a menopausal state.
Does anyone else get this?
It makes me worried because arthritis runs in my family. I'm going to ask my doc but also wanted to know about other women

I have been having similar issues. My blood work came back indicating I have an inflammatory dissorder. I have just been taking Tylenol for muscle and joint pain as required and upped my  vitamin d and taking omega oils, it's certainly helped

Are you taking your vitamins still?  I would have your thyroid and your vitamin b level checked, both can cause arthritic type symptoms.  Good luck.

I still take prenatal vitamins, I also take omega 3-6-9's and calcium. Just lately I've been taking extra vitamin D as well.
I know my thyroid levels are fine. They were just checked at her 4 month appt. I have a slightly underactive thyroid which I take pills for.
I will ask my doc and see what she thinks. Might have to do some bloodwork.
